Blast from the past revisited…

Blast From The Past…

Back in the late 60s through the early 80s I was a budding photographer with endless days of shooting who knows what and with countless hours of working in the bathroom, I mean darkroom. And to this day I still have hundreds upon hundreds of negatives still in sleeves waiting to be digitized.

I can still remember the excitement I had waiting for each picture to develop. It was an exciting time for me as I learned and discovered the mysteries of photography. Photography taught you to be accurate and have lots of patience, it took time, it made you think, it swallowed you in, but you loved it.

I have no problem with the digital life today and the speed at which we can get things done. But I do feel experiencing both sides of the coin has made me a better photographer.



Note: Photos were all taken in the early 80’s.
